Pickrell UGRR Station
This led to the routes to the East and West being more difficult to navigate from Columbus to Lake Erie Stations. Thus, often “middle” routes were established to help evade pursuers. The entire community and specifically Henry and son Mahlon Pickrell acted as conductors and station operators in keeping with the Quaker mission:
“For I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me
drink, I was a strnger and you invited me in, I needed clothes
and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in
prison and you came to visit.”
